Pass an Interim Control Bylaw to protect the North Gwillimbury Forest

    1. Petition by

      Erin Kemp

The North Gwillimbury Forest is one of the ten largest forests in the Lake Simcoe watershed. It is important habitat for wildlife, helps to protect the lake by cleaning and storing water, and provides a place where people can go to relax and enjoy nature. This is no place for a subdivision. It is time for the Town of Georgina to respect the ecological protection rules in the new York Region Official Plan and pass an Interim Control Bylaw to prevent development in significant wetland and forest areas. You can get more information at SaveNGForest.org.

      Wet lands and Forest cover are becoming the next endangered species. The cool our environment hold water to be gradually released into the ecosystem.

      Habitat for flora and fauna is of significant interest to home owners and the population as a hole.

      Society needs the variety that is offered by our natural environment.

      Hundreds of species of animals, birds, plants, and insects call this natural habitat home, an ecosystem unto itself, and part of our ecosystem as a whole. How far do we go? Where do we stop? "The world is too much with us, late and soon, Getting and spending, we lay waste our powers;--Little we see in Nature that is ours; We have given our hearts away, a sordid boon!"

      There are plenty of other places for a development that won't be harmful for the environment! It's important to protect our ecosystems.
